Red House

More than ninety-nine and one half days before Jimi Hendrix realised he hadn’t seen his baby in a long while, this tune which appears in the 1695 edition of Playford’s dancing master was adapted by John Woodcock Graves to accompany a ballad about his late friend, the huntsman John Peel. Do ye ken that song? Anyway, last year Morris Oxford tried to use this in an arrangement of John Peel, realised others had too, and left it alone. But having learned the tune (which also goes by the name “Where would Bonnie Annie Lie”) it seemed a good idea to use it here.
